I suggest taking the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. The light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems and getting the codes will show what the computer has noted so a problem/potential problem can be remedied. Hope this helped and best wishes.

1999 Nissan Sentra 1.6L sets p0304 code

check that your spark plug wires are all secured tight. the far right cylinder is giving you the issue, cylinder #4. Is the engine light flashing while the car is running? if it isnt flashing, then its a past code and isnt misfiring anymore. if the engine light is flashing, you either have a bad plug wire, or a bad ignition coil/distributor.

Speedometer and odometer not working

with the car on safety stands and running in gear check the speed sensor with a volt meter . The oil light should light up wen the ignition is on and go out a second or two after starting. Check the sender unit and wiring .

Whats this mean

That's your glow plug warning light. When it's flashing it means u have an engine management problem. The car can still be driven if running properly but u will need to have it diagnosed and repaired soon. 4_23_2013_9_39_45_pm.png

Engine runs rough and loses power

this light tells you that there is a code in the computer and this should be checked out before any possible engine or emission damage.this needs to be one of the first thing that should be done.another thing how long has it been since a proper tune-up done to it.

My MIL always on and sometime it will flashing.When the Mill flashing my engine can't work properly like something stuck with their exhaust gas system.Can u advise it?

without having the car right here at my garage it would be a little difficult to diognose properly but through experience a flashing mil light along with engine running problems and probably you have decreased fuel economy would be a o2 sensor specifically the front one. The front o2 is really important in the way a car runs and operates. The proper way to diagnose would be to pull the code to varify its the o2, replace o2, clear code and test drive afterwards.

The check engine light would stay on and sometimes flash--the car would run badly. I replaced faulty spark plug wires and the ignition coil. Now the car runs VERY poorly and the check engine light flashes...

The wires and coil was a just throwing parts at it ,for no reason. Try disconnecting the battery to see if the codes clear. You will need to scan for the code if it comes back and proceed with the proper diagnotics to find the issue with the engine performance.

Problems excellerating and hesitates then engine light starts flashing but keeps running

Could possiblty be an o2 sensor, or if it has the 3.8 engine in it make sure there isnt a crack in any of the coils.
